I love shopping at Trader Joe’s and I thought I’d take some time to highlight some of my recent finds. I don’t know about you, but I have to limit my visits to once a month because I always end up with a huge grocery bill and all I have to show from it are a bunch of random snacks.
I think their Fearless Flyer ads are genius. By the time I’m done reading through, I want to buy almost every product they’ve featured in detail. I’m pretty sure they could convince me to buy a snack made out of cardboard.
I was particularly excited with the October flyer, as TJ always does such a good job with the pumpkin themed items. This year though, they went beyond my expectations, even making a pumpkin Greek yogurt and pumpkin macarons.
These are in the frozen aisle and are my favorite pumpkin item from TJ this year. There are 12 in a box, as they are mini ones. The shells are chewy with a good pumpkin taste mixed in with some spices. Technically you’re supposed to take them out and let them thaw before eating, but I always eat them with the middle filling section still frozen because I don’t have the patience to wait. No, these aren’t gourmet macarons, but they taste good and are relatively cheap.
Pumpkin Ice Cream
I got this last year and couldn’t resist getting it again. TJ makes super premium ice cream, which means it contains at least 16% butterfat, resulting in an ice cream that is extra rich and creamy. This ice cream has a lot of pumpkin spice and is really good.
Just The Clusters Maple Pecan
I discovered “Just The Clusters” cereal from TJ last year. Basically it’s an entire box full of the crunchy sweet granola clusters, without any of the flakes. Genius! Recently they came out with a Maple Pecan flavor for Fall.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese
I love pumpkin cheesecake and slathering pumpkin cream cheese on bagels. TJ’s pumpkin cream cheese tastes a lot like pumpkin cheesecake and tastes great on bagels.
That’s the end of my TJ series for now. I’ll try to do another one next month. Have a good weekend everyone!
